Espanola Valley Schools, The District of Pojoaque Schools, and McCurdy Charter schools are joining the Crisis Center of Northern NM in an effort to raise awareness of the impact of Domestic Violence of Children.
Children who are exposed to violence in the home carry many social issues such as poor bullying, depression, poor academic performance and drug addiction. It is crucial that children exposed or witnessed of violence seek help.

Everyone is encouraged to enter the poster contest. The winner receives $250 cash prize. Contact us for more details.
